Cowboy Caviar – The Perfect Appetizer for Any Occasion!

(All posts may contain affiliate links and/or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy) 

If you need a fun, yet delicious recipe for all of your summer barbecues, Cowboy Caviar is going to be your new favorite appetizer! This delicious “salad” is comprised of some of my favorite items and is full of freshness in every bite! There are many variations of how Cowboy Caviar can be made, but this recipe is my version. Feel free to add some heat with a jalapeño, or you can omit the avocados. It really is super versatile and can be made to your liking! I am calling this an appetizer, but really you could add this on top of grilled chicken or pork and it would be the perfect compliment as well — The possibilities are endless!

INGREDIENTS:

4 roma tomatoes, diced

1/2  yellow pepper, halved and diced

1/2 red pepper, halved and diced

1/2 red onion diced

2 avocados, diced

1 bunch of fresh cilantro, finely chopped

1 15oz. can pinto beans, drained and rinsed

1 15oz. can black beans drained and rinsed

1 can sweet corn drained

You will also make a sweet and savory dressing to immerse the Cowboy Caviar with. When you add this to this mix of veggies and beans, it sets the delicious factor over the top!

DRESSING:

2 Tablespoons red wine vinegar

1 Tablespoon lime juice

1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup sugar

1 Teaspoon onion powder

1 Teaspoon oregano

Salt/Pepper for taste

INSTRUCTIONS:

In a large bowl, combine all of the salad ingredients together except for the avocados. (corn, tomatoes, beans, cilantro, bell peppers, and red onion). 

In a smaller bowl, whisk together ingredients for dressing and pour over the salad mixture.

Refrigerate for at least 1 hour before serving so that the flavors can combine together. Just before serving add in the diced avocado.

Serve with your favorite tortilla chips or veggies and enjoy! It is so addicting, you will have a hard time eating just a few bites!

Mini Caprese Bites With Balsamic Drizzle #SundaySupper

(All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

One of my favorite appetizers that I turn to again and again when we dine out is Caprese Salad! There is something to be said for the ooey gooey mozarella paired with the sweet tomato, basil and balsamic glaze! Caprese Salad servings can sometimes be on the larger side, so wouldn’t it be fun to make them into small bites that you can pop into your mouth when you are having a party or social function?

This week the #SundaySupper Tastemakers are bringing you some delicious Fancy Appetizers that will be perfect for your next party or social function. A big thank you goes out to our amazing host Wendy of Wholistic Woman who helped to make this event happen!

This past Christmas Eve I was at my friend Charity’s house and we made these Mini Caprese Bites With Balsamic Drizzle that are to die for! They are the perfect taste of a Caprese Salad but in bite size. Shhh….don’t tell anyone, but I can down 5-6 of these in 1 sitting. Oh, and did I mention that they are guilt-free eating? How can you wrong with Basil, Tomato, Mozarella and Balsamic?

Not only are these Mini Caprese Bites With Balsamic Drizzle delicious, they are also super easy to make! You are sure to reach for this Fancy Appetizer again and again! People will think that you slaved over this fancy appetizer all day long, but you can whip it up in no time flat!

Ingredients:

Cherry Tomatoes

Fresh Basil

Mozzarella Balls (I found these in the specialty case at my local grocery store)

Balsamic Glaze (you can make your own, but I found the most delicious pre-made variety)

Salt/Pepper to Taste (optional)

Toothpicks

Directions:

Take the Cherry tomatoes and cut off the bottom to form a “foot” so that they can stand up on their own. Take a mozzarella ball and place on top of the tomato followed by a fresh basil leaf. After you have assembled the plate with all of the bites, drizzle the balsamic glaze over the top. You may also sprinkle with salt and pepper if you prefer. Serve and enjoy!
